  • Help clients throughout the transaction life cycle, from initial due diligence to post-deal implementation and beyond;
  • Provide assistance with buy-side and sell-side tax due diligence services and provide tax transaction support;
  • Prepare tax structuring advice and assist with review of transaction documentation and tax modelling services;
  • Be a key participant in project managing transaction timetables and deliverables. 


What we’re looking for

Here’s our ‘wish list’ but don’t worry if you don’t tick all the boxes. We’re interested in your strengths, what you want to learn, and how far you want to go.

  • Australian tax experience ideally gained in a top tier accounting firm, corporate, business consulting or legal environment;
  • Ability to develop strong and broad relationships with clients and provide a high level of client service;
